I don’t know about you, but as soon as the days start to get longer and cooler, I tend to do the opposite of what we are meant to do with our skincare routines and eating habits.

I eat more carbs, drink less water, moisturize less and hibernate more. Even when I do venture outdoors, I am exposed to harsh elements including wind, air-conditioning and hand-sanitizer which can cause havoc on healthy-looking skin.

Coming from the summer months where hair requires less work, skin produces more sweat and oil to clear out the body and generally eating better and feeling more hydrated, Winter comes along and my skin is scaly, my hair is brittle and I am constantly needing a hydrating mask.

With the temperature dropping, it’s the perfect time to give our bodies some TLC. I’ve found the best mix of products to keep your skin and body glowing during winter.

Multi Tasking Beauties

Save time in your day with a winter routine of products that works to protect, nourish and heal dry skin all in one! Winter skin requires more love so choose products that brighten and protect. My picks are formulated with nourishing ingredients including rosehip, coconut and macadamia oils.

Tip: Mix a hydrating serum into a tinted moisturiser or BB cream for a glowing complexion

Hair Don’t Worry

Your locks can become dry and brittle in the cooler months and lacking the nutrients and oils for healthy, shiny hair. Adding a weekly mask or daily treatment to your regime can help to revive dull hair.

Protein, Algae extract and plant oils work wonders to bring moisture back while Silica works from the inside out to repair and restore resulting in healthier growing hair.

Note: We might get away with washing our hair less in Winter, but make sure you are regularly brushing your strands to stimulate  the natural oils from your scalp.
